The Film Forum started in the fall of 2005. It is dedicated to the discussion of films that not only delight us in the spectacular ways cinema most naturally does but also leave us puzzled, challenged, unsettled, or even irritated. The films we show cry out for discussion and have afforded us on many Monday nights in the Rocky Theater with the pleasure of intelligent and passionate conversation.
This forum connects the members of the Princeton public inside and outside of the university and a core audience has developed from the regularly participating students, faculty, and other Princetonians. The Film Forum provides a great opportunity to witness the intellectual talent of Princeton in action and, moreover, to engage with it.
